Founder & Managing Editor
An impassioned advocate of responsible investment, Gavin has been a prominent writer, broadcaster and commentator for over two decades. His first book, Frontier: Exploring the Top Ten Emerging Markets of Tomorrow (Bloomberg/Wiley), was acclaimed as a “must read” by the Financial Times. His latest book, Chain Reaction - How Blockchain Will Transform the Developing World (Palgrave Macmillan), was described as “the perfect way to step beyond the clichés about blockchain and explore the full range of possibilities in a rich and compelling way” by Tim Harford, Financial Times columnist and BBC presenter.
Gavin’s work leading Bloomberg’s teams of journalists uncovering the world of derivatives that triggered the global financial crisis won him the Society of American Business Editors & Writers’ Best in Business Award and the Society of Professional Journalists’ Deadline Club Award.
Subsequently creating and leading Bloomberg’s Emerging Markets team, Gavin founded New Markets Media & Intelligence to help increase understanding of the challenges and opportunities in emerging markets and technology through his own writing, and through constant and proactive dialogue with the most influential journalists, investors and leaders. He regularly organizes and chairs key global forums, including the recent Bloomberg Emerging & Frontier Forum and events at Nasdaq and the London Stock Exchange.
